"Backwoods" as written by and Michael Peter/kiedis Balzary....
i saw you downtown
and you gave me the eye
i saw you
and i wanted to cry
cuz i know i've seen you somewhere before
we had a life but it is never more
now i'm alone in my room and i'm waiting to die

well i had this heart
it was made out of glass
i gave it to you
and you said "this won't last"
then you threw it out to the dogs in the street
they crushed it under their dirty hind feet
picked up the pieces and threw them all out in the trash

chorus
this time i'm lookin' for
something i didn't have before
somebody who will take up my time
somebody who won't mess with my mind

bye bye leave me alone
don't bother calling i'll never be home
with boys like you i'm better off on my own

well i've got this heart
and it's made out of wax
and i stuffed it full
of old nails and tacks
then i put it into a red flannel sack
stuffed it under my bed at the back
i dripped the wax on the face of your photograph

this time i'm lookin' for
something i didn't have before
somebody who will take up my time
somebody who is clever and kind

bye bye leave me alone
don't bother calling i'll never be home
with boys like you i'm better off on my own
yeah with boys like you i'm better off on my own
